LA County isn't about to let it slide if state lawmakers mess with local funds.
Los Angeles County supervisors have voted to sue the state if California lawmakers pass a budget plan that would withhold more than $420 million in local funding.
The Board of Supervisors voted 4-0 on Tuesday to authorize a lawsuit if the Legislature approves a budget plan that "illegally" borrows local redevelopment and gas tax money.
Lawmakers and the governor announced a tentative agreement late Monday that would plug a $26 billion budget gap. Borrowing local tax funds is part of the proposed solution.
Los Angeles County could lose $109 million in gas taxes and more than $313 million in redevelopment funding next year if the deal is approved.
